What to expect
Worship Sunday Mornings, 9:00 and 10:30am
SPC strives to create a worship experience that is welcoming to all. When you arrive, you will receive a bulletin that outlines the service and includes a number of announcements. Musical instrumentation is contemporary/modern (piano, guitar, bass, drums are typical) but both traditional hymns and more recent Christian songs are sung. Dress would probably be described as “casual”, much like many work places today. Visitors are welcomed from the pulpit, but are not asked to identify themselves publicly. (No “raise your hand if you’re new!”) The first half of the service includes singing, prayers, and announcements; the second half includes the message and closing songs. We worship together at 9:00 and 10:30am every Sunday.
SPC offers Sunday morning classes and/or childcare for ages infant through 12th grade, and periodic Adult Ministry classes. For more detailed class information, visit:
- Infant Care and Children's SundayClasses
- Mid High (6th-8th) Sunday Classes
- Senior High (9th-12th) Sunday Classes
A map of classrooms may be viewed here. Of course, families are always welcome to worship together during the service. Our quiet room with a view to the Sanctuary and audio feed is available if you need to comfort a small child.
Where is the main entrance?
There are several Sanctuary Hall entrances on the South, West and East sides of the church. Our doors are open! The Sanctuary is located to the north of the Sanctuary Hall. View a map of our campus...
Where can I get information and a great coffee mug?
When you come for a Sunday service, SPC Greeters and Children's Ministry Personnel can help you find a classroom. For information, stop by the information center in the Sanctuary Hall and pick up a visitor mug. These are put together specifically for you to take home — full of information on ways for you and your family to connect and grow at SPC — and a nice coffee mug to boot!
What help is available for those with disabilities or special needs?
Amplification for the hearing impaired can be obtained through the use of a hearing device. Just ask an usher as you come into the Sanctuary and he/she will set you up. If you have mobility needs, pull up to the front of the church at the south entrance and a greeter will assist you. There is dedicated wheelchair access in the Sanctuary to the right and back pew section (as you're facing the podium). Children with special needs also learn about the love of Jesus in Sunday school! For more information, visit the Special Needs page.
Do you ask for an offering?
Yes, SPC understands the offering to be a normal part of Christian worship. The offering signifies our calling as Christians to use all of our resources for God’s purposes. Many people make their actual contribution online or through the mail, so there is no pressure for everyone to “put something in the plate.”
Will there be communion?
SPC celebrates communion (Eucharist, Lord’s Supper) typically on the first Sunday of every month. For more information, visit the Communion page.
How do I get there?
